How can I remove the decimal point and blank spaces during the file transfer process. These are defined as zoned numeric fields. The file is a typical iSeries physical file with both Character and zoned numeric fields. The blank spaces and decimal point do not show when you display the file on the iSeries using the DSPPFM command. However after transferring the file and opening the file in notepad the blank spaces and decimal point have been added to the file. The Operating system is V7R1 and client access is version 6 release 1.
